I was wondering if any of you women have ever gotten pregnant on your period?
, I know the odds are stacked against me getting pregnant on my period. My ovulation cycle has been all over the place. Normally my periods are 5 days total. The first 3 with normal flow the last 2 spotting. But me and my husband had unprotected sex on the 1st day of my period And on the 3rd day of my period This week. After the unprotected sex on the 1st day of my period, The last 4 days have been spotting. This is not normal for me. Is it possible to conceive pregnancy while you're on your period? If so then would it slow down your menstrual cycle that you're currently having.?

It IS possible but VERY unlikely. What could possibly happen is if you have a very short cycle and you ovulate within 5 days of your period ending and you had sex at the end of that period, the sperm could still be in you and fertilize the egg. However during your period you don't have the cervical mucous that helps keep the sperm safe and travel to the egg plus that's the off chance that your cycle is messed up and you ovulate very soon.

I heard it is possible but would be very rare. The period would make the environment bad for the sperm. If you had unprotected sex while on your period I would not worry about it!
